Prom Brewster Gen. p. 2: In an 
affidavit made at Leyden, Jiuip 
25, 1609, Elder Brewster, his wife 
Mary and son Jonathan declare 
their ages to be, respectively, 42. 
40, and 16. 

Notes from Hunter's Collections 
(someone verify) concerning 
founders of New England: Elder 



William Brewster. 1567-1644. Wil- 
liam Brewster's wife Mary thought 
to have been daughter of Thomas 
Wentworth. William Brewster ] 
and wife Prudence, parents of El- 
der Brewster. 

No. 4743-M. B. R. June 10, 1939. ' 
Brewster. Ref. to query by B.L.B. 
in the answer by Aksarben, as to 
name of wife of William Brewster, 
submits this data: "William Brew- 
ster of Rushmore in Suffolk, Eng.. 
in Henry 6th time, mar. Mary, 
dau. of Wm. Harby, Esq. of Hil- 
ton, Suffolk, and had Issue " 
Visitation of Suffolk, 1612, p. 117.1 
E. M. G. (B.L.B. asked if she was! 
Mary Love, the son Love having | 
been given her family name.) 

Henry VL reigned about 1425.1 
William Brewster and wife Mary| 
Harby might have been gr.-gr.- 
parents of Elder Brewster. 

It is doubtful if Mary Brewster's] 
maiden name was Love, as a fam- 
ily of that name, fairly prominentj 
in that time, were royalists; one! 
member, was executed Aug. 22| 
1651 for connection with an in- 
surrection. 

William Brewster was private] 
secretary to Sir William Davison, 
was with him in Holland, later in I 
London when Davison received 
the order from Queen Elizabeth 
for the execution of Mary, Queen 
of Scots, in 1587, in which year 
Davison's public career ended and ] 
Brewster returned to Scrooby. 
Brewster may have met and mar- 
ried Mary in London. Their first] 
child, Jonathan, was born in] 
Scrooby August 12, 1593. 

During that period there flour- 1 
ished in England a society called! 
the Family of Love, with many! 
followers, 5,000 in London alone, I 
with which the Brewsters may| 
have been identified. ' 

Could Mary Brewster have been] 
the daughter of the fiery and pa- 
triotic Puntan, Peter Wentworth.] 
member of Parliament and pris- 
oner in the Tower where both! 
he and his wife died in the I590"s?l 
i This is a possibility. Being a de- 
scendant of Jonathan Brewster! 
the writer has made considerable] 
investigation as to Mary's parent- 
age. On a visit to Scrooby, Eng- 
land, 1930, I learned the old rec- 
ords were burned many years ago.

Mr. W. R. Freeman, 
Brighton, 
Ontario, Can, 



May 34, 1927. 



My dear Mr. Freemant- 

Your letter of the 21st inst • has been received and thank you 
for it. 

The tracing of family lineages is simply a matter of searching 
records and these vary all the way from being non-existent or inaccurate 
to appearing at once and in good form. Because of this, I ask the 
client to advance such sum of money as he may be willing to spend for 
beginning the investigation, and I do all that is possible for the 
amount sent and make a report. It is then at your discretion to go 
as far as you may wish on the same basis. Fifteen to twenty-five 
dollars is a customary deposit and I cha^rge at the rate of tvv-o dollars 
an hour. 

Of course it is not possible to guarantee the result as I am at 
the mercy of the records, but I do guarantee faithful search and an 
accurate report • 

With regard to the question you ask about the authenticity of 
my findings, would say that in connection with all data given ^reference 
is made to the book or books, with page, from which the information is 
taken; and I never intend to quote or use material which is not re- 
garded as authentic.

Dear Sir, 

In tvylng to obtain 5?o;ne trace O""^ '"." peorl^, v/ho 
came here from t" _ litecl States, I have "been able to lea^n 
fro:. War Department at Washington, that the:' miirht ha,ve 
lived in Hanover, I am, therefore , writ '.i ^',:u tc see if any 
of you:^:' records wo_ild show the partieui-ars regarding the 
family* 

The only members of the f anil - acout whom I have 
ever heard are -»my grandfather ,Sylvanus Freeman and his two 
brothers, Ethen and Jesse, The war records show ,that Ethen 
Freeman, at the age of nineteon^lol nerl the n^-mir a.« x-i-iva^ e 
in t-e Li^th. U.S.Infa^ ' 'Gapt. Edward i^hite ; for tlie war', 
on Jan, >th.,iri3 at Woodstock and wa- charged May 1 7tn, 
1b1^ Ih . at SackettQ Harbor, b;/ reason of e--pi--. . , ■ of term 
of service. He was born 1- K, nover ,1^.11. and was a clothier b- 
occupation. The 2^th. infantry became the 6th. U.S. Infantry 
after May l6th. i8l3. I know also, that m--' Grandfather's v/if- 



in the States wa- 



hite and died there before he came to 



'Canada. He w- s a yonger brother, born, I believe, 



L«;^ 



It looks to ir.e like a i^or^rible relatiOl^ iDetween the CB.itB.in 
V/hite and Sis wife. The Whites and Preem-.n' s , possiloly , are 
old iianov:.r uuiaes. 

Ethen Freeman was "born then, about 17>4 and no doubt 
the records of births , Mar -iagen - deaths woulr.. ^how reco-ds 
of this family. If I a- not a^ . lyin- io the proi^- -^ i-^pp f^^ 

this information,ijerhapr •■■ " ' '- let 

me knoWfWhere the data may be found. 

There is a liVelihoo;" ,that ol, ■ i---i-'^-t- cf ^-om- 
town would know something about the '' p- e- of bye„gone 

days and»if i^^then was a clothier, there might be something- 
about Hanover to recall th^- fa. :embers# 

Any attent' " ■ i t^^ ■ - his enqjiir:'- by you, sir, wo^ilf^ 
be ai-i-reciated a great deal. You might hand my letter to 
any one of the name , if such there be ^ and whom you think'

WENTWORTH COAT-OF-ARMS 

Bij Mabel Louise Keech 



;; 




( ^ :'. S ".'''<^^| ^ 



Wentworth 

/^NE day came a large envelope in 
^-^ the mail, containing a photograph 
of a fine looking gentleman, a photo- 
graph of a Coat-of-Arms, and a 
notice of the dates to see the Tax 
Collector! No letter — just a note 
asking for the return of the Coat-of- 
Arms photo when through with it. 
No doubt this was for me to use for 
Hobbies, for which I was grateful, 
as material from readers is always 
welcome. And as the Arms had been 
carved in marble, and also as it was 
one of my own family, interest ran 
high. 

Therefore correspondence between 
us was next in order, and here are 
the stories. 

T. T. Wentworth, Jr., of Pensacola, 
Fla., was the thoughtful new friend, 
and his friend, Alfred Davis, is the 
artist in stone, the photograph of 
whose work we see here. He carved 
this as a token of friendship, and it 
is now in the Dorothy Walton Mu- 
seum in Pensacola of which Mr. 
Wentworth is a director. 

The Coat-of-Arms is carved from 
a piece of pure white Alabama mar- 
ble, 8"xl6" and mounted on a piece 
of pure black Belgian marble, ll"x 
19%". 

Mr. Davis is "well knouTi as a stone 
and marble contractor and artisan, 



all over the country. Among his 
masterpieces are the post offices in 
Casper, Wyo., Nogales, Ariz., and 
Battle Creek, Mich.; banks in Madi- 
son and (Milwaukee, Wis., Cincinnati, 
and Detroit; Custom House in 
Niagara Falls; and the Woodward 
Ave. Presbyterian Church in Detroit, 
all the carving of which he executed 
personally. Many residences are 
beautified with his workmanship, and 
we are happy indeed to have a repro- 
duction of hi? artistry to show 
"Hobbies" readers. 

THE COAT-OF-ARMS 

DESCRIPTION 

Snble a chevron between three 
leopards' faces or. Crest — A griffin 
passant, wings elevated, argent. 
Motto — En Dieu est tout. 

Translated into non - Heraldiic 
terms — A black (sable) shield, on 
which is charged a gold (or) chevron, 
between three gold (or) leopards' 
faces. Color-names are not repeated, 
therefore we know both chevron and 
leopards' faces are of gold. The crest 
is a griffin standing with right paw 
raised (passant) with wings elevated, 
and is silver (argent) in color. 

This carving is not in color-code, so 
the colors have to be found in the 
records. It is copied from the Went- 
worth Genealogy, and, as you see, 
has no mantling or helmet, and 
rather a flowery edge for a practical 
shield. However, the symbols are 
there, and correct, and the workman- 
ship is most excellent. 

Interpretation 

The chevron, "likened unto the 
roof of a house," is emblematical of 
one who protects defenseless people, 
and granted to one who has achieved 
some notable enterprise. It has often 
been granted to on^ who has built a 
church, or a fortress, and in so doing, 
accomplished a work of faithful 
service. 

The leopard symbolizes far-sighted- 
ness. His spots represent the eyes of 
Providence, looking in every direction. 
Part of a figure has the same signifi- 
cance as the whole. In the case of a 
leopard, the face only is the usual 
way of presenting it, and sometimes 
it is pictured with flames coming 
from its mouth. The leopard is oc- 
casionally used as the supporter of 
the shield. The "leopard's head jes- 
sant", or swallowing a fleur-de-lis, 
was conferred by Edward III during 
his wars with France, to his vic- 
torious leaders, the idea of the device 



being that the lion of England had 
swallowed the lily of France. The 
lion of the British Arms had been 
derived from the leopard in that of 
Richard I. 

Recently we told the story of the 
griffin — but will repeat briefly: The 
natives of India had warnea the Eng- 
lish explorers that a beast with head 
of a wolf, beak, talons, and wings of 
an eagle, body of a lion, and 8 times 
its size, guarded their mountains, and 
that no precious stones or minerals 
could be taken from them. Although 
the English laughed at the super- 
stition, they took home the idea, and 
thereafter, carved on their banks, 
and granted to financial experts, this 
"guardian of the treasure", the mon- 
ster — the griffin. 

Colors are representative of the 
first bearer's personal characteristics, 
and are grants of merit. Sable, the 
fur lining of royal robes, signifies 
nobility and constancy; gold, gener- 
osity and elevation of mind; silver, 
sincerity. 

The motto — "En Dieu est tout", is 
translated "In God is all." 

Family History 

According to "Domesday Book", 
William the Conqueror's census, 
Rynold de Wynterwade lived in 1066. 
His son spelled his name Wyntwood. 
And in a few generations, it became 
"Wentworth"! 

The family has always been one of 
importance in England. The titles of 
Marquis, Viscount, Earl, Baronet, 
have for centuries passed from gener- 
ation to generation, and the old 
Wentworth Castle, in County York, 
9 miles from Sheffield, and 13 miles 
from Doncaster, is famed as having 
been the focal point of many an 
historic event. 

Sir Thomas Wentworth, Baronet, 
Earl of Strafford, occupied the castle 
in 1640, and the Earl Fitzwilliams, 
having been a descendant through 
his mother's line, now occupies the 
ancient landmark. He gave, to a des- 
cendant in this country, a Van Dyck 
painting of the Earl of Strafford. 

The Earl was not a direct ancestor, 
but a contemporary, in the family, of 
Elder William Wentworth, the first of 
the name in this country. 

From Elder William, most, if not 
all, of the Wentworths in this country 
are descended. 

The Genealogy states that the "first 
Indubitable evidence" of his living in 
this country is his signature to a 
petition for a settlement in Exeter, 
N. H., July 4, 1637. He died in Dover, 
N. H., in 1697. Although not an 
ordained minister, as an elder, he 
substituted for a minister for many 
years, and was active in all civic and 
religious affairs in the community. 

One branch of the family moved a 
bit farther south, each generation — 
New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Con- 
necticut, New York, South Carolina,

HOBBIES— T/zc Magazine for Collectors

Georgia, Alabama and Florida. In 
this line is Theodore Wentworth, Jr., 
who made this article possible. 

From "The Story of Florida" by 
W. T. Cash, 1938, we glean a few 
of many interesting facts about this 
member of the family. He has, as 
have many of his family before him, 
linked himself with the furthering 
of community enterprises. He is a 
historian of national repute, among 
his writings many articles on local 
history and a book on the History of 
Pensacola. Every week he gives a 
talk at the local radio station on the 
various aspects of the history of 
different parts of Florida. His his- 
torical collection is one of the most 
complete in the state, and his collec- 
tion of stamps and coins is also out- 
standing. 

Ajiother interesting personage 
among the descendants of Elder Wil- 
liams, is Mrs. E. W. Williamson, 
whose beautiful home is located less 
than two blocks from me in Evanston. 
The spending of several hours in 
studying and admiring this home, 
furnished in antiques, has been my 
privilege, and it is indeed an educa- 
tion to hear her tell the stories of 
these quaint and most unusual pieces 
of glass, china and silver, all of which 
she shares with her guests as they 
come and go. The home was rebuilt 
and redecorated according to the •' 
plans of Dr. and Mrs. Williamson 
(the Dr., an eminent surgeon, also 
being a collector), to house most 
perfectly their rare findings. Many 
pieces were originally in the early 
Wentworth family homes, and now 
many of the sets of dishes have been 
finished after many hours of search- 
ing. 

Doubtless reports of other interest- 
ing "Wentworths" will be brought to 
our attention after this article ap- 
pears, but even if we knew before- 
hand each month the many splendid 
people bearing the name chosen, it 
would be, of course, impossible, even 
to mention them. But, each person 
will have an innate and a justifiable 
pride in seeing his or her family name 
appear.. We know this, from the 
scores of letters received. 

Who is next? We do not even 
know. Do you? 

(WUl Minnie F, Sartor please write us again?) 

NOTES FOR SEARCHERS 
NOTE 23. SPELLING OF NAMES. 
Many searchers are confused because 
of the different spelling of surnames 
— yes, and Christian names. This is 
not surprising. But we should not 
take different spellings too seriously. 
Sometimes in a legal document a 
man has spelled his own name two, 
even three different ways! Such 
errors are due to several reasons: 
Many of our ancestors were deprived 
of the privileges of advanced educa- 
tion; clerks and other recorders often 
epelled phonetically — perhaps they 



were not well educated, misunder- 
stood the person, or were hurried, as 
in recording soldiers filing past the 
desk; poor writing was copied wrong 
— or even good writing. 

Let us cite a few examples: Clark, 
Clarke; Hill, Hills; Meredith, Meri- 
deth; Thomson, Thompson; Steuart, 
Stewart; Mosely, Mosley, Moseley. I 
think I have mentioned the 36 spell- 
ings I found of the Gaillard name, in 
one search. Gaylord is the most fa- 
miliar in this country now — McGil- 
liard is one. 

Someone may say to me that per- 
haps there will not be so much diffi- 
culty in tracing his name because of 
the unusual way in which it is spelled. 
And yet we fijid few printed refer- 
ences to the name, because one per- 
son has decided to make the change, 
and only his line, perhaps not all of 
his own descendants, continued as he 
started. 

You may have heard a person say 
emphatically — "With the 'e' please" 
or, "We spell our name with 2 'is' ". 
But if he would trace his family only 
a few generations, perhaps only two, 
he would find another spelling. 

Therefore, in searching, if having 
difficulties, look for all spellings of 
the names. Localities, dates, and 
family first names are the most defi- 
nite means of establishing the con- 
nection.

CREST CORNER 

Just to show the perversity of 
humankind — the "Crest Comer Va- 
cation" of February, the wisdom of 
which was doubted by both the editor 
and myself, has brought more re- 
sponse than any other one feature in 
these two years! As it has always 
been hard for me to keep serious for 
long at a time, perhaps this is a 
test that to deviate occasionally does 
no harm. 

This week I talked to a group of 
about 30 boys and girls of the 6th 
grade, studying Medieval HistoTy. 
My invitation came from one of the 
boys who had chosen "Heraldry" as 
his project. I went to the school 
(Oakton, in Evanston), finding the 
class splendidly prepared. 

Their assembly hall had splendid 
paintings of knights, castles, banners, 
coats-of-arms, gorgeous costumes, so 
the children had already had this 
influence. But when my guest and I 
reached the room, not only we two, 
but parents who had been invited, 
were met by a committee who showed 
us chairs, and a place to leave our 
wraps, and a little later, guided us

about the room. Our guides explained 
to us how they had collected the pic- 
tures of medieval days; painted and 
drawn helmets and shields; written 
"reports" on the various sub-divisions 
of the subject; and even molded ob- 
jects from clay. The most outstand- 
ing piece of work was a painting of 
a banquet — men in medieval costume, 
the butlers in service, a boar's head 
on the platter in the center of the 
board. 

When we assembled in the little 
lecture room, the boy who had sent 
the invitation was ready to run the 
stei'eopticon lantern, one of the girls 
introduced me, and all were alert, 
ready for the pictures. How easy, 
how inspiring to talk to such a group. 
They had asked me^ for an hour, 
which I had thought too long, but 
there was no restlessness during the 
40 minutes with the slides. There 
was a good story about a boar's head, 
and one or two other hair-raising 
fabulous stories to give them a bit of 
excitement; but also examples of the 
correct way to emblazon Coats-of- 
Arms, so that when the discussion 
came afterwards, they spoke of one 
or two errors they had made in their 
own drawings. Crusader, Mayflower, 
Washington, family — all kinds of 
Coats-of-Arms for them to learn 
about. 

Often in lectures, and perhaps in 
some "Crest Corner" I have men-

tioned that I thought boys and girls 
should be taught by their parents the 
part their own ancestors played in 
the forming of the nation's history — 
and in our country now, this might 
mean of some lands across seas. A 
good example of this was evident 
that day. One little girl during the 
question-asking time, and chance for 
tfu-m to talk, said that her mother 
had told her she was a descendant of 
John and Priscilla (iMullins) Alden, 
and the others all showed an interest 
by speaking up "Came on the May- 
flower", etc. — and she had just seen 
those two armorial bearings on the 
screen. There was no false pride, 
just a real joy, justifiable, and the 
others sharing it. This is what I 
contend creates a new interest in 
history. 

This class was a fine example of 
what can be accomplished by a 
teacher in giving the pupils in a 
natural way, in connection with their 
history studies, a glimpse into those 
days of chivalry with its accompany- 
ing pageantry, and to lead them into 
a knowledge also of the influence of 
the lives of their own families, in 
days long past. 

We refer teachers, reading this, to 
the August 1939 issue, the whole 
article having been written for you.

The Genealogist 

By Mary Louise Tredinnick 
The genealogist is he 
Who traces back the family tree 
In all its sad diversity, 
Pride, shame and plain perversity. 
He is preoccupied with graves, 
And probate courts, and gladly slaves 
Deciphering epitaphs, and saves 
The evidence of queer old Dave's 
Odd will — Aunt Phoebes' sin — 
Apprentice, ».onvict (with chagrin, 
Too bad this line is genuine — 
Thought it began with Peregrine!). 
No Mercury so fleet as he 
In search of widow number three, 
Relict of Uncle Zebedee, 
Died Portsmouth, 1693. 
His figrure is a question mark! 
Direct, collateral, to the Ark, 
Female and male, each patriarch 
He has recorded, with remark. 
Bom, married, humble, eminent — 
Careers, good, bad, indifferent. 
No genealogist's content 
Until "Died" seals the document.

'it's a Small World" 

Mrs. James Leake Stirling, Louisi- 
ana, recently ran an ad in another 
department of Hobbies and as a re- 
sult found a relative. She writes: 
"As a result of our ad a lady from 
Texas wrote me for information con- 
cerning the Audubon Pilgrimage to 
be held in this parish, and mentioned 
that her husband was a descendant 
of the Alston family of North Caro- 
lina, and wasn't my husband from 
that line also. Of course he is, and 



we are very glad to have made the 
contact. As my husband is preparing 
for publication a mss. on the 'Stirling 
and Related Familier;,' this will en- 
able him to fill in some gaps in that 
line. It was such an odd thing, I 
thought you might be interested in 
knowing th-at an ad in Hobbies found 
a relative for the advertiser." 

Lincoln Contest 

As part of its fiftieth celebration, 
the Lincoln Memorial University at 
Harrogate, Tenn., is offering two 
prize scholarships to the high school 
seniors who write the best 1,000 word 
essays on the subject: "A Student 
Looks at 'ABE LINCOLN IN ILLI- 
NOIS'." The first prize will be a 
four year scholarship covering room, 
board and tuition; the second will be 
a four year scholarship covering one- 
half these expenses. The contest closes 
June 15. The winners will be ex- 
pected to conform to the work pro- 
gram of the university and fulfill the 
requirements for admission. The 
judges will be Robert E. Sherwood, 
Dr. Stewart W. McClelland, President 
of Lincoln Memorial University; Ro- 
bert L. Kincaid, Vice-President, R. 
Gerald McMurtry, Professor of Lin- 
colniana, and H. E. Barker, Archivist 
of the Lincoln Association of Southern 
California. 

As an aid to the appreciation and 
discussion of "ABE LINCOLN IN 
ILLINOIS", two study guides are 
available, one published by Educa- 
tional & Recreational Guides, 1501 
Broadway, New York, the other by 
Film Guide, Taft Bldg., Hollywood, 
Calif. 



Coronado Celebration Planned 

Lyons, Kan., in the heart of Coro- 
nado's Kingdom of Quivara (1541), 
is planning a Coronado Cuarto (Cen- 
tennial celebration for 1941. Horace 
Jones, chairman of the general com- 
mittee, has already named committees 
of five separate groups as follows: 
Benefit Performances. H. H. Houston; 
Spanish Music and Customs, Mrs. 
L. W. Teall; Church History, Mrs. 
J. M. Desemo; Spanish-Indian Mu- 
seum, A. W. Volkmann; Indian Vil- 
lage, R. J. Edwards; Spanish Costum- 
ing, Miss Mary Alice Jones. Com- 
mittees for other branches of the 
celebration are to be announced later. 



Woman's College Hobby Show 

Keuka College, Keuka Park, N. Y., 
a woman's college, recently chalked 
up its second hobby show. First prize 
went to Doris Flodin for her collec- 
tion of 52 pairs of shoes, mostly 
china. A collection of Indian crafts 
and pictures of Indian life gained 
second prize for student, Minnie Dol- 
son. An intensely interesting part of 
the show was Dean Owing's collection 
of Religious Arts and Crafts which 
she has collected because of her 
interest in the subject.

"ounty growers feel the time pp- 
lortune for their annual meeting. 
?ruce Rutherford, president of the 
Tomato Growers' Association, has 
uranged for this on November 25th 

|n Colborne Town Hall. At after- 
loon meetings the attendance has 
hot been worthy of the organization, 

jo it is this year planned to try 

Jonvening at 8.00 p.m. Mr. A. 
Sirett of Brighton and Ronald 
lyatt of Prince Edward County, 
/ho are members of the Ontario 
Joard, will address the meeting and 

|xplain regulations and rulings in 

|egard to the tomato crop. 

The tomato crop is an important 
[ne to the county of Northumber- 
ind, as last year there were over 
loo growers supplying the ten can- 
ning factories serving the district 
Ind, with a fairly satisfactory pro- 
luction, it is believed the tonnage 
[ill compare favorably. The farm- 
had difficulties in regard to the 
Ite, wet spring season and lack of 
pip to produce the crop. Most 
[nning factories faced wartime 
acuities in their work but, in 
jite of all unfavorable factors, a 
Iry satisfactory supply of tomatoes 
\s canned and should make a con- 
lerable contribution to the food 
jplies of our armed forces and 
I'ilian population in the coming 
iiter. 

i.s secretary, R. C. Banbury of 
Ighton, agricultural representative, 
[advising the growers and it is 

ped they will make their meeting 
[worthwhile event in the planning 

future activities.

GUNYO'S GROCERY 
SINCE 189». 

In the Ensign of December 29th 
1899, under the caption "Freeman's 
old stand", there appeared the foll- 
owing advertising message to the 
public, over the signature of the 
late Alfred Gunyo. "Having pur- 
chased the grocery business and 
good-will of the late J. W. Free- 
man, we wish to call the attention 
of the public to the reduced prices 
on crockery and fancy china. All 
desirous of purchasing goods of this 
class will save money by calling at 
an early date as the whole is being 
offered at cost. Not withstanding 
the cheapness of our goods, we 
have come to stay and solicit not 
only the patronage of Mr. Free- 
man's old customers but trust to 
see many new faces. Wishing all 
a happy New Year, I am, yours 
sincerely, Alf Gunyo." 

In the news columns of that same 
issue there appeared the following 
item. "We are pleased to note 
that Mr. Alf Gunyo, a Brighton boy 
has purchased the good-will and 
grocery business of the late J. W.; 
Freeman. Mr. Gunyo was travell-i 
er for the Brantford Bicycle Sup-| 
ply Company for- over two years 
and for the past year was city 
manager for the Goold Bicycle 
Company of Hamilton. Having 

been twelve years in the grocery 
business, six years with Mr. J. W. 
Freeman and six years as manager 
for Mr. S. G. M. Nesbitt, Mr. 
Gunyo has had a long experience 
and with his energy and marked 
ability, will undoubtedly be success- 
ful in this new venture." 

And so for almost forty-four 
years the name of A. Gunyo meant 
the grocer to the people of Brigh- 
ton. When his son, Stuart, went 
into the business with his father 
■Tind even since the latter's death 
the name of A. Gunyo & Son rep- 
resented a retail grocery store in 
Brighton. Of recent years a whole- 
sale business has also been con- 
ducted by the firm and now, since 
November thirteenth, the retail 
store has been closed and only a 
wholesale business is being operated. 
The long familiar windows of Gun- 
yo's grocery store in Brighton have 
been painted over and for the first 
time in nearly forty-four years, the 
public cannot buy a pound of but- 
Lter from Mr. Gunyo 




A-653— (l)-(3)-W. A. S. April 
4, 1942. FREEMAN. In con- 
nection with recent Freeman 
queries, the Dawes-Gates Ances- 
tral Lines by M. W. Ferris gives a 
carefully documented account of 
Edmond (D P^eeman, his English 
ancestry and his descent through 
William (2) to the third genera- 
tion; also the related Prence, 
Sparrow and Godfrey families.

My dear Mr. Freeman: 

This replies to your letter of June 25. Our assist- 
ant reports tiiat the birth of Sylvanus Freeman, August 10, 
1759, is recorded in the published Mansfield Vital Records. 
His marriage and the birth of his v.dfe, Phebe lentworth, 
however, co not seem to be recorded in our General Index 
of Connecticut Vital Records. Both records should, however, 
be found in Ner,' Hampshire rather than in Connecticut, it 
wooj-a seem to us. We suggest you comiaunicate vfitn tne Sec- 
retary of State in whose office is the New Hampshire Vital 
Records index, or the Nev; Hampshire Historical Society in 
Concord, Ner/ riampshire, also. 



Yie cannot go into extended research, hence we have no 
"rates" to quote. In cases requiring extended research, we 
refer inquirers to professional genealogists fami-Liar with 
our records. \'ve will be glad to supply the names of such 
persons if you msh us to do so. 

lours very truly.

Dgar !ir.F2;.eeman, 



My genea.logioal vork was put aside fro more than 
two months beca.use of the illness and dea.th of my mother. 

The other day I had a ohs.nce to spend a half hour 
lie and here is what I found in the office of the 
f Prohate . (Mr. Sawyer with whom you had corresponded is 
he Court; he could have found what I did if he had cared

Clerk of t

Estate of Sylvanus Freeman of Lyme 

1800 July 4 Phebe Freeman petitioned the court that Natha,niel 
Hewes be appointed administrator of her husband's 
estate. (There was no will, as I sispected. This 
gives an approximate da,te of his death) 



July 10 Nathaniel Hewes filed 



his administrator's bond. 



" Inventory ordered by the court and men appointed 
for that purpose.

I '^^ /? Ujt^iA-^'^ of the cli. so no way of determining the exact 

order. Each of these bonds, except that for Phebe 
which was filed the 26th was signed by PheJae, the 
raothe]ij as guardian a-nd by Nathanial Hewes and 
Joseph Heaton. He did not sign the bond for 
Phebe, Jr. as I said. 'lio was he, I wonder?

June 13 License to Sf 11 granted by the court. 

June 25 N,H. advertised tne auction of 8-1/4 acres of land 
and 1 /3 of a pew in the Lyme Church . 

Other papers include ^laims against tne esta,te; expenses of last 
sickness and funeral*^ The doctors bill was ^15.90 which seems to 
indicate ^..n illness )f some length as charges ^-ent in those days.

No mention of the sale of the "old log house and appletrees"; so 
Phebe must have stayed fro awhile. 

Did you get a report on the 1810 census ? And did you ever hear 
from the Lyme *^hurch? If not, I '11 see what I can do. 

The Guardians Index listed the children in the following order 

but that does not mea.n that they are^'in 
chronological order, 
Phetee, Ethan, Jesse, Mehitaole ,Sylvanus , Polly, John 



I am sorry that I did not have time to go to the land records 
office, but hope that I can go again before winter. If I ca.n't 
I'll write the Register of Deeds and see if the index shows 
anyhting that pertains to Phebe. She could not have had much 
to sell, it seems. So, I doubt if there will be any transactions 
to record. 

We have , However, an approximate fl3.te for the death of Sylvanus 
and the fact that he died intestate (so there was no will to be 
lost or destroyed) ; also we know that Pnebe ■vvas appointed guard- 
ian of her children. I saw the original papers and Phebe could, 
write a legible hand for she signed her na.me in every case. 



Sincerely yours
